Possible book quote

Postby mharmon » Fri Dec 30, 2016 8:52 pm

I found this quote on my computer. I don't know if it comes from a book or not, but I would like to figure out if it does.

"I fear that thing that sits in the dark and creeps up right behind you just after you cut off the lights and start walking out of the room. It slinks up behind you step for step when you climb the stairs out of your dark basement. If you stop, stand very still and concentrate you can feel it brush the back of your neck ever so lightly. You may not notice it but it's always there just on the other side of where you can see. It appears in mirrors the split second you look away and is gone milliseconds before you look back."

Does this sound familiar? I have searched on every book page that I can think of.

I found this...?


Google finds nothing else of the sort. Which usually yields pretty good results with book quotes.
